Cody Rhodes vs. Malakai Black announced for AEW Grand Slam


Two matches have been announced for the AEW Grand Slam edition of Dynamite that will take place on September 22.

Cody Rhodes will face Malakai Black, marking Rhodes' return after taping Go Big Show’s second season. After Black attacked Cody to take him out last month, Black has defeated and attacked other members of the Nightmare Family, including Arn and Brock Anderson, Lee Johnson, and Dustin Rhodes, who Black defeated tonight on Dynamite.

Another match was established between MJF and Brian Pillman Jr.. While protesting his loss against Chris Jericho at All Out, MJF set his sights on Pillman’s aunt Linda, as well as his sister. Pillman came out and confronted MJF, which led to a brawl. Wardlow broke up the attack, but Griff Garrison came out to even the odds until Wardlow laid him out. Garrison was then held as MJF struck him with his diamond ring.

Later backstage, Garrison was being checked on by medical staff. Pillman said he went to Tony Khan and got the match for Grand Slam.

AEW Dynamite Grand Slam will take place at Arthur Ashe Stadium in Queens, New York.
